  • 在福岡的最後一日到了博多總鎮守的神社來參拜,面積並不大的神社,放了扺園山笠祭的山車,有夫妻銀杏及一株千年銀杏,並可以依告牌上的步驟順序參拜求籤,若求到不好的籤,可以將它留在神社內,旁邊還有一個稻荷神社,朱紅鳥居,十分有日式神社的氣氛特色,神社旁有個小茶攤的燒麻糬也很好吃,真的值得去造訪!

  • This is the famous shrine in Fukuoka. Always crowded with worshiper. Very near kamikawabatamchi shopping street which is sort of good , food and Japanese traditional souvenirs and known as tourist center , also near Canal city.
  • Classy and beautiful shrine. You can see a huge "Yamakasa(山笠)", a kind of Dashi(山車), used for Hakata Gion Yamakasa(博多祇園山笠), a festival in July in Fukuoka City. This is a float decorated with a lot of ornaments like Samurai dolls, flowers and a small castle etc. It's just as gorgeous.
  • sacred and peaceful. I left before the July "山笠" festival started. But still can feel the passion of the folks
  • Beautiful ancient Shrine. Founded in 757 in order to worship Amaterasu and Susanoo. Nice clean and well-maintained. Not crowded..enjoy a short peaceful time here. Stop by if you are in the city.
  • An attractive shrine in Fukuoka, you cannot find another shrine with the same scale with this.
